THE MOST COMPLICATED PROJECTS ARE FOR POMICULTURE!
Outdated guides, annexes without decimals make even more difficult the process to access the millions of euros made available for farmers to invest in fruit growing, said the specialists in pomiculture at the event organized by the company NaanDanJain Irrigation in partnership with USAMV, ICDP Maracineni and Reeve Asset Management.
Out of 173 projects submitted this year to the Rural Investment Financing Agency (AFIR) under submeasure 4.1a Investments in fruit holdings, 159 projects have been endorsed. The approved projects amount an area of 2.059,44 ha, said Dorin Sumedrea, scientific director at the Institute from Maracineni, in his exposition at the NaanDanJain Irrigation Projects event, held on 7th December 2016 at USAMV Bucharest.
